Prior to World War 1, Sheila Young created such classic paper doll characters as Betty Bonnet and Lettie Lane. This delightful full-color collection features Polly Pratt, another of Ms. Young's charming creations. Selected from plates that originally appeared in Good Housekeeping magazine between October 1919 and August 1921, these captivating illustrations spotlight Polly and her playmates with apparel for the holidays and year-round activities. Twenty-nine dolls and 89 costumes, meticulously reproduced from rare originals, depict in authentic detail an array of historically correct outfits. Paper doll fans can dress the dolls for the beach, camping, school, fancy dress parties and a Fourth of July picnic, as well as for Valentine's Day, Christmas, Halloween, May Day, Easter and other special occasions. An abundance of period accessories (umbrellas, hats, pulltoys, dolls, paper lanterns and more) add a nostalgie touch to a collection that will thrill youngsters, collectors and costume historians alike.
